4. Rider fans want an announcement prior to Christmas with a number of the teams players who will be Free Agents in February re-signed with the team. One big name on this list is Willie Jefferson who had 2 top 10 defensive plays in the CFL in 2018 and was seemingly snubbed in the CFL awards. He doesn't have any NFL workouts planned and says his film stands for itself. Since he is one of my favourite players it would be amazing to hear he'd be back with the Riders for 2019.

3. It would stand to reason that many players on that Free Agent list likely don't want to sign because of the upcoming CFLPA negotiations. It was announced early in the week that the CFL General Managers and Head Coaches will meet on January 10th, 2019 in Mount-Tremblant, Quebec. They will meet with the media January 8th. Wouldn't it be nice if all of these CBA issues were settled early in 2019 so the season can get underway? Read the CFL's announcement HERE.
2. Rider fans are not known for their/our/my ability to accept change. Randy Ambrosie has instituted a coaching cap for 2019. While it seems that Ambrosie has mostly changed things in the CFL for the better lot's of fans are seeing the detrimental effects of this "Rider Rule" since many teams have already had to part ways with staff. If Randy doesn't shout Bazinga! then we all have to learn to accept this new situation. While that's not really something Santa can bring us - it can strengthen our belief, hope and will to support our team through the next year and hopefully the number of coaches on staff has nothing to do with coaching a team to winning the Grey Cup...which is ultimately what Rider Nation wants in 2019.
